What peas are the best

Sugar snap peas are nice and sweet, if you let them go too far you can still pod the peas, you need to cover your peas with fine mesh or fleece when they are flowering and the moth is about (late June to August)

They pupate in the soil overwinter so you need to try and kill them off in the soil too, the nematode you spray on them can also be watered into the soil

I'm growing Amethyst which has small fruits, flowers are setting ok. The fruit grow pretty quickly one pollinated. Have you tired spraying the flowers with water or using a paint brush?

Either replant them into the ground or into pots. They won't survive in a dry state
